About

From Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, July 7, 2016:

When McCartney kicked off the fall leg of his “Back in the USA” tour, the first stop was in Milwaukee at the¬†Bradley Center.¬†And he gave an interview to the Journal Sentinel’s David Tianen backstage.

“I came with an intention of doing an hour and a half. That’ll be it,” McCartney said of the tour’s set list. “At the same time, my problem, which is actually a great problem, is a lot of people love the Beatles, and then a whole new generation loves Wings. I have a lot of people say, particularly people in their 30s, say, ‘I like Wings better than the Beatles.’ That always surprised me.”

And so the concert that night spanned nearly three hours, including such Beatles classics as “Hey Jude” and “Eleanor Rigby,” and Wings hits “Band on the Run” and “Live and Let Die.” Tianen dubbed it “an exercise in joyous and unrepentant nostalgia.”

“Sir Paul himself, at 60, is an advertisement for the preservative powers of veggies and rock ‘n’ roll,” Tianen wrote in his review. “He has the natural grace of a man completely at ease in his own skin.”

Ticket prices jumped up dramatically in the nine years since McCartney’s previous visit, going for as much as $252. But the show was sold out, grossing about $2 million.
